press release: time for green and blue

Another opportunity to shine for the celebrated date caliber: Orion olive gold and midnight blue join the NOMOS Update series

GLASHÜTTE/BERLIN, OCTOBER 2018

Just this spring, NOMOS Glashütte released its iconic Tangente, Ludwig, and Orion models with an entirely new caliber and integrated date function—and so the Update series was born. One of those revised icons, Orion, is poised for another variation. Joining the white silver-plated dial are two new color versions: an elegant midnight blue and olive gold, a subtle shade of green with a touch of golden warmth.

As one of the brand’s earliest models, which formed the first family of NOMOS Glashütte watches in 1992, Orion can rightfully stake its claim as a classic timepiece. The model was long available exclusively with manual winding, since only a very thin movement could be housed in its elegantly domed stainless steel case. With the Update series, which introduced a new neomatik date caliber (DUW 6101), the still super-slender Orion grew to a diameter of 41 millimeters. Winding occurs with the smallest movements of the wrist, allowing the date and time to be displayed automatically.

The convenient date function on the ultra-thin neomatik date caliber in Orion Update models is easy to adjust in either direction. The date window, created specifically for this model, completes the sleek design. Domed sapphire glass above and below adds invisible strength to this fine NOMOS watch. The dial and case of Orion are curved, while the lugs are tailored to fit the wrist.

Now, the iconic timepiece is available in green and blue—two new highlights in the Update series. But neither the color nor the size of this hand-assembled timepiece could ever detract from its core appeal, which is precise, timeless elegance. Whether in silver white, midnight blue or olive gold, Orion is always an understated companion that brings subtle, everyday elegance to wearers and their wrists.

Orion neomatik 41 date midnight blue and Orion neomatik 41 date olive gold will join the NOMOS Update series in October, when they will be available in stores and online at nomos-glashuette.com.

new: Orion neomatik 41 date Olive Gold & Mightnight Blue

NOMOS introduces two new color options for the Orion neomatik 41 date!

The NOMOS Orion neomatik 41 date was introduced at BaselWorld 2018 as part of a full series of watches powered by the new caliber DUW 6101 ‘Update’. Earlier today NOMOS added two new variations to the collection: the Olive Gold and the Midnight Blue.

NOMOS Orion neomatik 41 date Olive Gold

The NOMOS Orion neomatik 41 date Olive Gold features a dial in a subdued shade of green which is highlighted by the gold tones of the hands and indexes. The date disc is made to match the color of the dial; a thoughtful detail that will delight many purists for sure. As far as I know this is an entirely new color for NOMOS?

NOMOS neomatik 41 date Mightnight Blue

The NOMOS Orion neomatik 41 date Midnight Blue features a dial in the svelte midnight blue. The hands and indexes are of a silver tone, giving this version a colder appearance. Again, the date disc is made to match the tone of the dial.
